eSports Success For Canterbury @ FUSE Cup Tournament

On Monday and Tuesday this week, our Canterbury Rocket League eSports teams showcased their prowess in the Fuse Cup Tournament held at the CEC.

The event witnessed intense competition and commendable sportsmanship.

In the Years 5-8 division, Canterbury teams displayed exceptional skill, dominating the round stages to qualify for three out of four quarter-finals.

In some tight knock-out matches, the duo of Tyler Pluples and Hudson Holland demonstrated remarkable talent, advancing to the final where they narrowly lost to Forest Lake State High School.

Remarkably, all members of our team in this division are in Years 6 and 7, promising even stronger competition in the coming years.

Highlighting the spirit of fair play and positive attitude, Humdhann Ikhlas was recognised as the MVP for the first day, a testament to his exemplary conduct throughout the competition.

Day 2 saw Canterbury boasting two formidable teams in the Years 9-10 division.

Easily navigating through the round stages, both teams secured their spots in the semi-finals, facing off against Forest Lake teams.

After triumphant victories in the semis, Canterbury found themselves in a unique position – a Canterbury vs Canterbury final.

The final showdown was nothing short of exhilarating.

The duo comprising Bentley Horne and Lucas Noy emerged victorious, clinching the title after winning the first two games in the best-of-three final series.

The success of Canterbury College in the Fuse Cup Rocket League Tournament not only underscores their skill in competitive gaming, but also reflects their commitment to sportsmanship and teamwork.

All Canterbury students represented the college admirably, and their achievements fill us with pride.

As we celebrate their achievements, we eagerly anticipate their continued success in future competitions, knowing they will continue to uphold the values of excellence and sportsmanship that define Canterbury College.
